Bob Dylan video is also unavailable.

I noticed that but I think everyone knows the song so it not having a link should be ok. If anyone would like a link I'd be happy to supply one :D

I'm glad you guys are enjoying the music. I know it's kinda all over the place for dates and genre's but then so am I so it's to be expected ;)

Thank you everybody. I'm glad you were able to find something you like. I didn't want to put up music most of you have heard a hundred times before.

Almost half of these songs are favorites of mine because of the lyrics. If the music doesn't get you right off then I most likely added the song because I loved the lyrics.

The biggest surprise to me was Sammy voting for "Teddy Bear Picnic". Go Sammy :thumbsup: :D

WAIT! I knew something didn't feel right. I forgot Red Light, which I absolutely loved. Apparently I 've not seen Jonny since he's cut his hair. I am not mad at that brother. Of course, that makes me feel a little cougarish because he's such a baby. Ew.

I'd like to see you and me make the weekly TT to Kenne but I get first place and you get second k :laughing:

I will be nominating "You & Me", in the next ten following the special we're doing next week. Maybe it will stand a chance of making the list. It is a really nice song and I'm not much of a Cooper fan but I really like that song.

I am very happy you guys liked the list. I hope there was something for everyone. " Under The Milky Way", is a bit of a surprise and everything after #4. The big names and songs always do well. Their popular for a reason ;)

I was surprised with the way a lot of people voted and quite pleased. You guys even voted for "Teddy Bears Picnic", :bow: :bow: :bow: Sad that "Mensch", got no votes and kinda surprised "The Night", didn't either.

I was thinking about giving some background on "Mensch", it's a sadly beautiful song. You can tell that by the tones of his voice. I can't quite describe what I hear in this song that makes me love it so much. I know what it means and Farin gave me the lyrics but thats not what keeps me listening to it and loving it.

There was only two songs that got no votes and I find that pretty outstanding. I'm very pleased with the way the voting went and the list turned out.

Thank you to all who played it was fun. You rock ! :bow: ! :bow: !
